Have you tried:

  $ sysctl -a | grep temperature
  dev.cpu.0.temperature: 29.2C
  dev.cpu.1.temperature: 29.2C

for your system?
I have an AMD cpu and the amdtemp kernel module provides that
information.  I am not familiar with the Intel cpus, but the coretemp
module is supposed to provide the same information for them.  I use
gkrellm for various thing, and it will display that information
